Molly’s Gone Fishin’


Happy Thursday to everyone out in cyber space. This little post is going to be doing double duty. I am representing Sweet Pea Stamps and Lacy Sunshine.  I have a very special project for you today creating with Heather Valentine’s, owner, artist, and illustrator for Lacy Sunshine, Molly Gone Fishin’ digital image. Heather has a line of red rubber stamps and digital images exclusively through Sweet Pea Stamps, and only through Sweet Pea.


For my cute little Molly (Do you think she is playing hooky?) I colored her with Copics and trimmed the colored image. I then layered her with two colors of cardstock.

Copics used:
Skin:
E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, & R20
Hair, stump, & pole:
E25, 29, 31, 50
Grass, pants, & eyes:
YG61, 63, 67, & G29
Shirt & bows:
Y11, 14, 15, 18, 19, 32
Fish:
B12, 14, 16, 18, and
YR21, 24, 27
Water:
B12, 16, 18
Background;
W00, 0, 1, 2, and
B12, Y18


To complete my piece I trimmed the designer paper and layered that with two colors of cardstock. Before attaching this to the card base I added thin grosgrain ribbon for the two corners. I added several Cheery Lynn dies for the flowers and the butterfly. After attaching these to my card I added some Liquid Pearls to the centers and the body of the butterfly.

My complete recipe:
